It is time for Helton to go. Get a recruiter ASAP! Illiad Active Member Joined: Nov 15, 2017 Messages: 34 Likes Received: 43 Nov 12, 2019 #1 Everyone knows Helton is a lame duck. The empty seats in the Coliseum know it, the recruits (that are "committed"....temporarily...to other schools) know it. Everyone is waiting for the AD to pull the trigger including Clay himself. Recruiting is a disaster. With recruiting going disastrously last year, and this year being even worse, it is time to secure our future and get a guy that at the snap of his fingers can still deliver a Top 5 recruiting class this year, and pull in key "free agents" off the transfer portal. (we all know who that guy is) Hire a new coach to go recruit, BEFORE EARLY SIGNING DAY (Dec 18) and we lose forever the opportunity to keep some 5star guys here in So Cal. Too many new hire college football coaches FAILED for one simple reason, they remained at their former jobs till the end of the season or Super Bowl before taking their new job, and did not engage in that first recruiting cycle, and it eventually killed them 2-3 years later...I have seen it too many times. ...lets see, there is one coach that isn't too busy now and could recruit a top 5 class in a weekend....hmmmmm, I wonder if he is already making calls?
